Going where you headed

If we do not change direction, we are likely to end up where we are headed.

– Chinese proverb

I read this the other day, and love it. Reminds me of that old saying I hear today:

The definition of insanity is doing the same thing over and over expecting different results.


Checking your kid’s homework

This is one of the funniest things I’ve seen in a long time. Below is a drawing that a daughter submitted to her teacher, and the topic was “I want to be like my Mommy”:

I want to be like my Mommy

After seeing this, the mom had to write a letter to the teacher and explain:

    Dear Mrs. Jones,  

    I wish to clarify that I am not now, nor have I ever been, an exotic dancer. I work at Home Depot and I told my daughter how hectic it was last week before the blizzard hit. I told her we sold out every single shovel we had, and then I found one more in the back room, and that several people were fighting over who would get it. Her picture doesn’t show me dancing around a pole. It’s supposed to depict me selling the last snow shovel we had at Home Depot. From now on I will remember to check her homework more thoroughly before she turns it in.

    Mrs. Smith

The Creative Path

I don’t really classify myself as a creative.  I’d like it.  It’s something that draws me, woos me, excites me.  But, creating–most of the time–is hard work for me.  And, I like easy work, fun work, stuff that comes natural.

I came across a blog posting about 22 blogs on how to stimulate your creativity.  Looks cool!  I haven’t had time to dig through these links but I’m looking forward to it.



I found this cool site called Wordle. You can create these word clouds based on a bunch of words or a blog site. Very cool. I tried this out for my blog, and this is the word cloud it generated:
